reporter dovetails neatly with our big question tonight. keeping them honest, if a strong majority of americans is telling washington they want a deal on the debt crisis, they want these guys to compromise with the other side, they want a mix of spending cuts and tax increases. then why isn't washington getting the mage? we've got new polling that says all of that. and this is important. recent polling may also explain why we haven't got an deal yet. we'll tell you what we're talking about. in any case, americans are speaking out today. >> good morning, speaker boehner's office. how may i help you? >> a summer avalanche of phone calls hitting the capitol. president obama asked for it in his address to the nation last night. here it is. house switchboard today getting nearly double the volume of normal phone calls, house speaker baine er's office reporting as many as 300 people on hold for as long as an hour. online the same story. site unavailable. server busy. we found better than one in three congressional web sites either slow or down entirely from all the volume. also multiple

: the last 48 hours this investigation has gone from about this big to this big. some officials may have already been caught lying. not only that, now we're told u.s. wasn't just helping send guns to mexico, taxpayers paid for some of those guns. and more than one federal agency knew about it. that's the latest in the scandal we know as fast and furious. according to sources an f.b.i. informant allegedly used taxpayer money to buy guns on behalf of the cartels, the f.b.i. knew it, they allowed it to happen and they failed to tell congress or the agency that was investigating him, causing that agency, the atf to spend two years, thousands of man-hours and millions of dollars pursuing information the f.b.i. already had about a man, the atf would never be allowed to arrest because he worked for the f.b.i. this information was confirmed this week sources say by the acting atf director ken nelson who met secretly on july 4th with congressman darrell issa and senator charles grassley. nelson who is going to be the fall guy in this scandal dropped a few bombs in his deposition indicating others

or soot. we have debt as big as our economy. we look a lot like greece already. it's going to have to have broad impact on every aspect of our socie society. >> let's bring in jessica yellin. what are your sources telling you about tomorrow's meeting. >> the goal is to jump start this process until the u.s. hits the debt ceiling. all sides i speak to are hopeful they'll get a deal accomplished. they want to discuss true specifics and set up hopefully a process, probably with smaller meetings in the coming days and weeks to solve this once and far all. the positions remain the same -- republicans want to cut spending an equal amount to the amount that the debt ceiling will be raised. democrats are insistant that must be paired with tax increases, call it what you will. people close to the negotiations are telling me today that they now like the y canned of a bigger deal, a dpeel between $3 trillion to $4 trillion. now, that's a pretty surprising change, because just a week ago, right here in the white house, the president held a press conference talking about the difficulty getting to a $2
to comment until you see some specifics. i think that the bottom line is in terms of an overall deal, the big holdup here is the fact that republicans have kept revenues off the table completely, even eric cantor yesterday, people said well, it's a great thing he says maybe he'll do a few of these egregious loopholes in the law, corporate jets and yachts and stuff like this, but even there, he had another loophole put in the law and none of the money that would be -- that comes from closing these loopholes would be used to reduce the deficit. so it's one step forward, two steps back. if republicans are willing to entertain serious revenues, there's a real chance for a big deal. if they're not, there's no chance for a big deal and i can tell you this. democrats are not going to go for something that says we have all these cuts that we'll put in the budget now and maybe we'll get revenues down the road, the ways and means committee or the finance committee will decide those down the road. leader reid issued a statement that i think sums up our view, that there has to be balance between cuts and
? >> well, look, it's a compromise. you've got big cuts, and you've got extra revenue. so it is a compromise, and you're running out of time. that august 2nd deadline is very, very close and to get this plan how you've got to move quickly because you've got to legislate, pass, vote, implement. bill: can they do that in the time they have lift? >> frankly, bill, it's doubtful. you think you can write the tax code in a couple of days? the highly unlikely. but you can see how republicans would probably go for reducing tax rates. it's hard for me to see how democrats could go for reducing tax rates. bill: now, before we fish here, though, this cut, cap and balance thing that passed in the house, that was all the talk over the past week. would that survive a senate vote or, ultimately, is it vetoed by the white house? >> i've not heard anybody who has said it will pass in the senate. that's, essentially, a symbolic move, and it's dead as of now. that's why there's so such attention on this gang of six plan. bill: we shall see. stuart, we'll see you on fox business network, okay? stuart varney lea
